American poet Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass , is a collection of poems notable for its frank delight in and praise of the senses, during a time when such candid displays were considered immoral. Where much previous poetry, especially English, relied on symbolism, allegory, and meditation on the religious and spiritual, Leaves of Grass exalted the body and the material world. Whitman was inspired to...

Each personage in The Pickwick Papers (just as in many other Dickens' novels) is drawn comically, often with exaggerated features of character. (Summary from Wikipedia) For further...

This is a librivox recording of An Essay on Criticism by Alexander Pope. Recording by Aringguth. An Essay on Criticism was the first major poem written by the English writer Alexander Pope (1688-1744). However, despite the title, the poem is not as much an original analysis as it is a compilation of Pope’s various literary opinions. A reading of the poem makes it clear that he is addressing not so much the ingenuous reader as the intending writer. It is written in a type of rhyming verse...

Tennyson's 1842 poem "Locksley Hall", and its 1886 sequel, "Locksley Hall Sixty Years After". A tragic love story, or a lucky escape for both parties? An amazing evocation of historical change and destiny, or a whiny fanboy's complaint? Tennyson reports; you decide!

LibriVox recording of Poems and Prose by Percy Bysshe Shelley. Read by Leonard Wilson. The English Romantic Period in literature featured a towering group of excellent poets: Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Shelley and Keats. If we add in forerunners Burns and Blake, we have perhaps an unmatchable collection of writers for any era. Of these, Percy Bysshe Shelley was one of the brightest and best, coupling a giant intellect with a highly emotional and impetuous nature. He was always a champion of...

You know the story. Second wife arrives at the Cornish stately pile to be greeted by the scary housekeeper and the overwhelming presence of Rebecca, the dead first wife. Forget the really quite dreadful 1939 film, and instead enjoy his superior version.
